EBC ニュースレター 2021年11月10日


From the EBC

Dear Friends of the EBC,

As you know, since 8 November Japan changed its regulations regarding the entry of new expats and the quarantine. Short-term and long-term visas will be issued again if the purpose is business. It is furthermore also possible to get visas for students and so-called technical interns.
The EBC states its appreciation for Japan’s easing of entry restrictions. However, the procedures remain very complex and we wish for further steps to be taken as soon as possible.

In this newsletter, you will read:

We hope you stay positive and healthy during this difficult time.

Valerie Moschetti
EBC Chief Operating Officer
